Two tone paint thread

Iíve seen several different two tone paint schemes when including pickups. Could we share different ones? My 68 had the roof A and D pillars painted white. Iíve seen some with only the roof white. The pickup in the picture has a different style on the body. How many versions were there?

Re: Two tone paint thread

Are you talking about factory combinations only?

Yes factory two tone. Not sure if they did three different roof paint styles. Some have the roof only white, other the roof and A and D pillars and some with the roof and all window pillars.

Re: Two tone paint thread

I think that along with the one you posted with the white pillars these are the other two, but I could be wrong.
Mines is the green one that I added the white front bumper and the pillars are the body color from the factory.

Thanks!

Can't tell from the picture of your green burb but does the white top extend down onto the D pillar?

Is it a different code or is it something for different years when the two-tone paint scheme changes? On my 68 the roof and the A and D pillars are white but on your truck (which looks amazing) only the roof and D pillar fare white.

My '69 wasn't a two tone but I painted it that way anyway.

I really like your Burb, it looks great and nice choice on the white roof.
Btw that flatbed you own is very nice also.

Thanks for the compliment.
I have no idea about the code difference, I always thought that most of the barn door Burbs had the body color on the rear pillars.

Thanks. I sold the Burb a couple of years ago, but I wish I had it back.
